Sada is revving

Thanks to the State independence of Tajikistan, ancient customs and traditions,

folk crafts and national holidays were revived, and today occupy a fitting place in the life of society. Sada also refers to the revived ancient holidays and is now widely celebrated throughout the country. The ancestors for fifty days and nights before the celebration of Navruz celebrated the Sada holiday with joy in their hearts. Thus, the Sada is a kind of preparation for Navruz, its forerunner, and these two great feasts are interconnected. As it is clear from historical sources, this holiday is called the Sada, which means “hundred”. In hoary antiquity, it was celebrated as the day of the discovery of fire, when a man put him in the service of himself. This prompted our eminent writers to praise and glorify the festival of Sada. For fire grants not only heat but also symbolizes light. With the arrival of the holiday of the Sada, the days become longer, and the nights are shorter. By and large, the Sada is a celebration of farmers and has acquired a special love among the people. In essence, the Sada has a natural basis, as warm days come with its approach, and the possibility of tillage appears. That is why farmers celebrated with joy and believed that Sada holiday foreshadows a fruitful year. The rituals of the Sada festival, according to a long-standing tradition, instruct people to perform good deeds, observe decency, treat each other graciously, with kindness, understanding, and respect, live in peace and friendship, come to each other for help, love the earth and protect nature. In other words, the meaning and content of the holiday of Sada are humanity, love of nature, reward and honoring the gifts of the native land.
